Definitely not the easiest trips you'll ever have, but it gets gradually harder as you get closer to the top, and gets you pumped for the amazing view awaiting you at the peak. DO NOT try the last part in rain, or thunderstorm, because the...More

Theoretically, it's an easy mountain trip but be careful. First of all: if the weather is bad, entering Giewont can be very dangerous. Secondly, there are so many tourists in July and August that you should consider another trip. It's crowded there. If the weather...More

It's a demanding hike (if you're not already a mountain-climber) up to the top of Giewont, 1895 MSL, Tatramountains, South Poland, but so worth it! Part of the strech is very steep with only a chain to hold on to, many parts are very rocky...More
